“Everybody associated with Treorchy Comprehensive School is immensely proud and delighted that 100% of our 245 pupils achieved at least 5 GCSEs at A*-G grades and that over 90% gained at least 5 GCSEs at A*-C grades again this year. We are also particularly pleased with the number of pupils that achieved an A*-C grade in both English and Mathematics. This demonstrates the hard work of the pupils and the excellent relationships that exist between them and the staff who are relentless in their effort to provide our learners with the best opportunities to achieve their full potential. We are all very proud of the pupils at the school and look forward to working with them as they enter our vibrant and consistently successful sixth form”.
